Question about 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco
Got a new battery and a new alternator, the battery still wont keep a charge, im not car savvy but any other suggestions ? it wont start now yet again unless i jump it. and even then its not reliable to drive in fear of it stalling in mid drive lol
It seems as though the battery is feeding something that is turned on. Turn everything off in the car with the battery fully charged. Fold down the rear seat and see if the boot light is on. The problem can be found by trail and error. If you know a mate who can use a multimeter then he could do a check on the battery. If the battery is loosing its voltage, take out one fuse at a time to isolate which curcuit is drawing the power.

Just had the same problem with mine. Turns out it was the ground, I believe from the battery. Now mine is great!
